The 1987 Haitian general election took place on 29 November 1987, with a second round planned on 29 December. In these elections voters would have to elect the President, 77 deputies and 22 senators. The election was canceled after troops led by Service d'Intelligence National member Lt. Col. Jean-Claude Paul massacred 30 - 300 voters on election day. Jimmy Carter later wrote that "Citizens who lined up to vote were mowed down by fusillades of terrorists' bullets. Military leaders, who had either orchestrated or condoned the murders, moved in to cancel the election and retain control of the Government."
